The University of Toronto’s Embedded Ethics Education Initiative (E3I) aims to give students the knowledge, skills, and incentive to integrate ethical considerations into the design and deployment of technology. E3I is a teaching and learning venture that embeds paired ethics-technology education modules into undergraduate computer science courses. First piloted in 2020, the program has expanded to reach thousands of students and is being piloted in other STEM disciplines, including statistics, ecology and evolutionary biology, and geography. Join E3I faculty leads Sheila McIlraith, Diane Horton, David Liu, and Steven Coyne on May 28, 2024, for “Building an Embedded Ethics Education Initiative,” a free online event exploring the creation and deployment of E3I. This free, online event comprises three scheduled, contiguous sessions, each including a 20-30 minute presentation followed by Q&A opportunities.
